Support the teachers

Please teachers don't cave. I know that you have some members of the public beating up on you but don't give in.

Go back look at the Freeman report and review the section on inclusion in the educational system. How much of the issues in that report were dealt with? Keep standing up for yourself and don't let the government push you around. If they legislate you back to work then get a record of every MLA who voted yes to it.

Focus on two issues to fix—inclusion issues relating to disabled students and administrative burden involving data entry. Focus on getting a fair compensation settlement such as three quarters percent to one percent a year and a different more sustainable long service award. If they attack you on the long service award and wages now then they'll also be coming after your retirement health benefits after they've chopped the other two. —Person supporting the teachers
